Hi all,

I upgraded to Windows 11 Pro, Version 21H2, OS Build 22000.469 and I have not found a way to uninstall the PC Health Check app.
An uninstall entry is not present in Programs and Features.
The app is missing from Settings> Apps> Apps and Features.
However, an entry is present in Start Menu> All apps>

However, when I click on uninstall, it takes me to the Programs and Features list where the uninstaller is not present/available:

So, has anyone else run inot this situation? Any help in removing this app would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Fish Tank

Holy moley, I completely missed that entry. I was looking for PC Health Check.

Anyway, I found a different solution. The uninstaller option is actually available if you right-click the original Windows Installer Package:

Many thanks to RFS for pointing out what I missed.
